Bonjour VHS folks!
For the last few years we’ve been using a cheap LED grow light (~25w) we bought at Costco to start seedlings in the spring and to grow things that don’t grow so well outside (like thai basil). Considering how successful it has been, a while back I ordered a pack of COB LED with the intention of building a little grow room with a little more power… and the COBs have been sitting in their package since. I ordered the 10W COBs thinking I might get away with passive cooling from old CPU heat sinks and use the fans if needed.
I’m hoping to keep cost to a minimum. Does anyone know if perhaps some of the recycling places might allow us to grab old PCs or parts from them? Otherwise I’m planning to go check Free Geeks when I have a chance.
I’m also open to other suggestions if anyone has experience with this… I’m no expert in any of this.
